Architect secures consent to increase apartments on key city site

Clegg Street view

Liverpool City Council has today given its approval to an increase in the number of apartments at a previously consented development in the North of the city.

The development, on land between Clegg Street and Great Homer Street, will include a revised mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments in an L-shaped block of between five and eight storeys in height.

Architects Falconer Chester Hall submitted the revised application on behalf of Caro Developments, who were also behind the neighbouring City Point project.

“Without exceeding the previously approved height and massing, we have reconfigured the interior layout to provide a mix of apartments which reflect the current marketplace demand more accurately,” said Falconer Chester Hall associate director Martin Haymes.

“The emphasis remains on quality shared areas and well lit interiors,” he added.

Under the newly-approved proposals the development will feature 76 one-bedroom apartments, 43 studios and eight two-bedroom units.

Overall, the number of apartments increases from the previously consented 93, to 127.

“The development represents a significant investment in a gateway site and will deliver a variety of high-quality, well-designed residential units,” said Mr Haymes.
